24th July 2017 – Newton St Loe, Bath

Our first ever visit to Newton St Loe: such a pretty village and a beautiful walk around Bath Spa University and its lakes.

We saw a swan and its cygnets, three grey herons and a little egret on the lake and a deer and a hare on the edges. As we walked close to the university there were loads of jackdaws and crows and a flock of a dozen long-tailed tits. On the way back we enjoyed watching the swallows and house martins collecting flies over the fields.

  1. Hi Martin,
    Me and lauren run NSLBIRDING our blog below, really pleased you enjoyed my patch and really pleased to see a little Egret on top lake it’s our second ever !! we had one 23/01/2017 but nothing since. I guess the herons were chasing off the Egret ? Also a Hare see fewer a fewer of these great animals. Really enjoy your posts i always look to see where you;ve been πŸ™‚ Hope to catch up with you soon , cheers Wayne (NSL birding)


    • Thanks Wayne. We were too late back to send to Avon Birds but I should have tweeted and included you. I thought it was beautiful there. One of the herons knocked the little egret off the post near the boat house. When I have another chance to go I will tweet you to see if you are free to guide. πŸ™πŸ» Always follow you too. All the best.
